11. Summary

Pros:

  • solid, weather sealed mechanical construction,
  • excellent image quality in the frame centre,
  • very good image quality on the edge of the APS-C sensor,
  • good image quality on the edge of full frame,
  • invisible longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • negligible lateral chromatic aberration,
  • slight coma,
  • good correction of astigmatism,
  • moderate vignetting on the APS-C sensor,
  • fast, accurate, and silent autofocus.

Cons:

  • huge vignetting on full frame,
  • noticeable distortion, in addition of moustache type.
It's not a secret: I enjoyed shooting with the Sigma C 24 mm f/2 DG DN very much. Its two slip-ups happened in categories that, when it comes to the Contemporary series, are nothing surprising. In other testing categories the lens fared well or even very well. The Sigma provides high image quality across the frame, up from the maximum relative aperture, and it is the most important thing. With such an angle of view and aperture fastness it's no mean feat.

In this class of lenses only the Sony 2.8/24G can compete with the Sigma successfully but the Sony is slower and more expensive. In the majority of shops the Sigma's price tag has been $640 but nowadays you can find it on a sale a bit cheaper. At such a reduced price-point, it is a really excellent offer which I recommend wholeheartedly.
